I know it’s not purely sales so what factors is it a combination of?
uber popular with the general public rather than just with fandom.
A lot of times it's what people say when they ant their favs to look even more succesful
I guess it has to do with public knowledge? A song thats played often at big events, people know the choreo, stuff like that. Basically even the GP knows about it and listens to it.
how many times it was played in Korea + sales + charting IMO
i mean there are no real rules
As per AKP it has to be a Twice song
Everything else is cancelled
But ~ 2 million dl and 100 million streams is a starting point.
it has to have longevity.
a bunch of Folks gotta cover it .
Sales(physicals) + digitals + charts + impact + longevity
I think it's more or less like this lol With impact I mean like playing the song everywhere, the public knowing the song and singing, and even dancing to it, singing it on occasions
Thing is songs like Playing With Fire are big hits but not considered NHs
Only Koreans can answer that really, but I think it's sth like Bruno Mars song that was played in every store in every mall for 2 month.
I don't consider PWF a national hit
for me the 5 song that got listed by Gallup every year (all ages)
so i don't care about "voting" or "selling"
even when i know that "selling" is part of it
Unbiased opinions + the rest.
People knows the choregraphy, the songs and the lyrics without knowing the group, The music is hear everywhere.
Sales are not really important in a national hit.
Sorry sorry is a bigger hit than all the kpop song but there is less sales than other songs like for example DDDD of Blackpink
Honestly, there really is no official definition, kinda like the kpop generations.
National hit was used to describes songs like gee, cheer up, roly poly etc but nowadays its losing its meaning, everyone is calling songs thats been no.1 on the chart a national hit.
It's just a song that is literally everywhere, you just can compare it with the biggest songs internationally to realize what it is, but instead of worldwide, it's in korea. For example, Shape of you. The song was everywhere, everybody knows it, even old people has to know it because they listen to it in radios, shows or other things. A national hit would be the same, but just happening in korea. Sales are not relevant to measure it imo. I consider Bar bar bar a national hit and it has 1.1M sales, but i don't consider PWF with 1.9M, because the fact that more people in their 20s or teens (which is where usually digital sales come from) like a song more so they're listening to it during more time, or comes from a big group so they check it more, doesn't mean that the song is viral and known by everybody.
Looking at the success of these songs should answer your question ^^
Probably this plus some magic ingredient like Sana Shy Shy Shy
This year are the candidates LS and Bboom Bboom
why is everything you say so true
Taste of public and idol fans define what come up of a national hit.
Momoland's Boom Boom was an international hit f.ex.
In kpop still Girls Generation (SNSD) is S-Korean national flagship!
Since S-Korean president Moon has congratulated BTS for #1 rank in TOP200 of Billboard
the Bangtan Boys were knighted!
